Around 50 NX users turned out for our event on February 15th at Daimler Trucks North America. Eight presentations were given touching upon NX CAD, NX CAM, Teamcenter, the reuse library in NX, and upcoming features in NX.

Generously hosted by DTNA at their new glass building on Swan Island, the main room held our CAD and PLM sessions. In a separate conference room, we busted out our NX CAM breakout session, letting attendees focus on their primary interests.

DTNA was pleased to announce that this week, their new building had been awarded LEED Platinum Certification. Some of the greener features were evident, such as 100% outdoor air being provided to each space in the building. According to the building features team, white noise is added to the building, otherwise the building feels too quiet due to a lack of a running ventilation system.

Our Presentations:

  • First up was Tony Tam from DTNA, giving an overview of the corporation and its ongoing focus.
  • Bryan Riddle, CAD Methods Lead at Daimler Trucks North America, presented on NX Usage at DTNA.
  • Matt Martin, CAD application engineer at Applied CAx, presented on What's New in NX 11, Drafting & Modeling.
  • Michael Grant, director of manufacturing technologies at Applied CAx, presented on Multi-Axis Tool Vectors for Hard-to-Reach Machine Features in NX CAM.
  • Pat Barrett, director of CAD-CAM-PLM solutions for Applied CAx, presented on Advancements in NX11 to improve 3D Printing, and also gave a sneak peak at Generative Modeling in NX.
  • Erik Barber, technical account manager, wrapped up the session by presenting on the software, training and services available from Applied CAx.

Thanks to all of our attendees and presenters. We're hoping to keep the ball rolling and hold these sessions more often.
